Thousands of Georgians are once again going to the  polls today but some people are also taking steps to make sure their vote is counted correctly.

That involves documenting polling tapes, that’s the printed results of how many people voted on each machine at a particular polling place.

Kate Greene has always been a very active voter, “my philosophy for last couple years has been i can’t do everything but I can do one small thing,” she said.

For her, that one thing is taking pictures of polling tapes at five voter precincts in savannah.

“It is one more step in making sure that Georgia has voting rights for all and because we don’t have, because we have paperless voting machines we need any avenue we can get to record what the machines do,” said Greene.

The engineer behind the movement, Kris Young hopes that this provides more transparency in future Georgia elections.

“I attended a few election board meetings and met a few other people who are kind of similarly concerned about the election machine and kind of we talked to each other and we decided that kind of the best defense against that would be to collect pictures of these poll tapes that are required to be posted outside of the Georgia election locations,” said Young.

But not all voters in Georgia believe this is the solution.

“I do not think its appropriate for individuals or private groups to go and do their own sort of back up system because there is no control over them as well so I don’t think there would be anymore validity to what they say than anything else,” said Deborah Lonergean, a Savannah voter.

Young says he and his group of volunteers are loosely organized but, they do keep in contact with the Coalition for Good Governance, which has several active lawsuits against the state of Georgia regarding these machines.

“I think we are learning that the citizens do really need to be involved we are not always so sure our representatives are representing us,” said Greene.

She will head over and snap a picture of those tapes when the polls close at seven p.m. As for those pictures, Young and his group of volunteers will look over them using guidelines outlined by election integrity experts and send them to any affected candidates.
